The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will have no objection if Punjab agencies probed the May 17 attack on Sikh preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale .

The CBI submitted in the Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday here that the state agencies could look at the case, since it had no inter-state ramifications. The central agency stated that its hands were full otherwise but, if the high court ordered, it could still do the job. The Punjab government has to reply. The next hearing is on September 15.

Based on a petition from Dhadrianwale, his driver, and two followers in June, the high court had ordered Punjab Police to report where the investigation had reached. Preacher’s aide Bhupinder Singh had been killed in the shooting and Dhadrianwale injured. The preacher blamed Sikh seminary Damdami Taksal’s head, Harnam Singh Dhumma.
